Al Biernat's Restaurant Review

: Come in style to delve into the Dallas scene and to witness some of the best catwalk fashions. You never know who you might see or become when dining at Al's. Any night guarantees local-media guest sightings and a back corner may be shadowing a celebrity. Owner Al Biernat, former head honcho at The Palm, will probably greet you at the door. This steak and seafood joint offers a crustacean-packed lobster salad and a standout Caesar. Enjoy the crab-corn chowder as a starter, and then take on the pan-seared sea bass with lobster risotto or the filet Oscar that sizzles on delivery, complemented by tender asparagus, garlic potatoes and crab meat with béarnaise sauce.
